The secretary holds a significant role in any organization to provide effective dictation for efficient record keeping. As the candidate for the A.R.T. secretary board position, I offer my skills, including attention to detail, and precise note-taking, in order to convey the A.R.T. board meeting minutes to our members. If elected, I will also present the archives of the A.R.T. to our members and the public in creative ways that are intellectually captivating. With this opportunity, I will reshape and refocus the duties of the secretary position and increase collaborations between the A.R.T. Board and our members.
